The 2023 Biathlon Sunday Program returns

From Sunday, 23 July for 6 weeks during the season

The Sunday Program aims to give all ages, a structured and fun way to develop the skills of biathlon.

Our four, highly experienced club coaches, will take you from complete novice, to being able to compete in the NZ National Champs in September this year. The program covers cross country skiing using the skate technique, rifle safety, marksmanship with laser / .22 rifles and the art of shooting under physical and competitive stress.

This year, there will be three groups :

Youth Development - ages 11-17, from complete novice aiming to achieve BNZ Bronze Biathlon Award
Team Snow Farm - ages 11-17, who have achieved BNZ Bronze Biathlon Award aiming to achieve Silver / Gold Biathlon Awards
The Masters - adult age, with some skate skiing experience and any level of shooting experience

The program will not be run on the competition weekends of the season (see list below) but program members will be encouraged and helped to take part.

5/6 Aug - WBC Club Championships

2/3 Sep - Merino Muster & reserve day

9/10 Sep - BNZ Championships
